Hotel Anganan Style Chicken Biriyani – Kovai Special!

Anganan Kozhi Biriyani:(Kovai Special)

Its kind of pretty funny that all these days…I thought my blog’s photo uploading capacity went for a toss! I had hard time uploading pictures all along for a while…I blamed myself  and my stupid fate a lot and eventually gave up the idea of blogging forever:(  Oh yeah, I felt off-key for some time and moved on!! Heck…with the technical errors!!!

Incidentally, today, I received a warm comment from one our blogger-friend…inquiring my status!!! Which re-kindled the spirit! And, I goofingly tried to add pictures to this post, here…guess what? It worked! Whooooo….it worked:) Come on…I couldn’t trust  my own eyes. Seriously I have no clue, how it got fixed all the sudden!

Something is happening around me, I could sense it, but couldn’t understand’…does this make any sense??? I know…it doesn’t…however, I felt like saying it loud:) Am bit excited, bit furious, bit annoyed, bit puzzled, bit tensed, bit happy  n depressed…nothing matters….am really really feeling complete to blog again:)
